Gluten-Free on Pinterest


Pinterest is a social media sharing website which is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other pinboards for images, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” photos.

Pinterest is a great place to find a variety of gluten-free recipes for the summer and other occasions!

Here a few dedicated Pinterest Gluten-Free Boards:






NOTE: Always be sure to carefully read the ingredients in each recipe you plan to make to ensure they are gluten-free as well as food labels of any products you plan to incorporate in your recipes to ensure that they are gluten-free


Don’t Be Fooled By Gluten-Free Cures


From the Canadian Celiac Association – Kelowna Chapter:

A safety reminder to those new to Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivity. There are many different enzyme products on the market that make it sound like you can eat gluten if you take their product fist.

Don’t be fooled.

They do not work. They are not approved by Health Canada or the FDA. The only cure currently available is a gluten-free diet.
